Life isn't a cruise ship but more like a battle ship, we need to fight the things on our way to our happiness. The things below, are I believe some of the things we have to fight against.
1. Doubting yourself
The worst part is doubt. When you doubt yourself, which we are taught to do, you get lost. Kevin Eubanks
When you start to doubt yourself the real world will eat you alive. Henry Rollins
2. Negative thinking
Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will. Zig Ziglar
3. Fear of failure
Failure seldom stops you. What stops you is the fear of failure. Jack Lemmon
It's your own fear of failure that stops you from doing things. --Anupam Kher
4. Criticizing others
Don't criticize what you can't understand.
Criticism of others is thus an oblique form of self-commendation. We think we make the picture hang straight on our wall by telling our neighbors that all his pictures are crooked.
Fulton J. Sheen,
5. Negative self-talk
Start listening to what you say. Are your comments and ideas negative? You aren't going become positive if you always say negative things. Do you hear yourself say"I could never do that","I never have any luck","I never get things right". Wow - that's negative self-talk! Try saying"I am going to do that","I am so lucky""I always try to get things right". Can you hear how much better that sounds?
Procrastination makes easy things hard, hard things harder. Mason Cooley
My biggest regret could be summed up in one word, and that's procrastination. Ron Cooper
7. Fear of succes
Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the "someday I'll" philosophy.
8. People pleasing
We need to create a new revolution, and to do that, don’t waste your life: stop pleasing people, and become who you always wanted to be.
